What would it be like to live courageously? I work with adults and teens as they figure out how to get unstuck. That stuck place may be an addiction, a divorce, a broken parent-child relationship, depression, ADHD, anxiety, or grief. I work as a counselor, a coach, and an accountability partner to help individuals dig deep to understand who they are and to take concrete steps to live more authentically. My clients say I have a unique joy that gives them hope and helps them find direction.

Divorce often seems like the only response to infidelity, and sometimes it is.
Infidelity ocurrs in many marriages. You may discover your partner has had an affair, or many affairs, and now you are experiencing the devastation this creates. Feeling pain and anger are expected. Allowing both you and your partner to express what you are both feeling and thinking is vital to the healing process. I will help you through this. Looking at yourself and your marriage can provide valuable insight into why infidelity happened. Some marriages survive and become great, some do not. The self awareness you will gain from this process is life changing.

I specialize in divorce adjustment, and have specialized training in child custody evaluations and parent coordination.
I believe that solid, intimate relationships form the basis of a person's well-being and help us define who we are. Our earliest relationships provide the foundation for all others. We often choose partners based either on what we want to replicate or avoid in our families of origin. When problems develop in our closest relationships, we feel out of balance and symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, often occur. I help people understand and change patterns that they learned in old relationships that may be influencing their current ones.

Divorce Therapists

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
